Holy Family 2010 Alleluia, Gospel, and Homily

My pastor, Fr Jon Seda, had a really good homily on Holy Family Sunday. He spoke of the distinction between dysfunctional families and holy ones. Holy families do not lack conflict, but they know how to resolve it and move past it. I included the Gospel Acclamation and proclamation of Matthew 2:13-15, 19-23 in our parish’s liturgy Facebook page. All together, it clocks in at less than nine minutes.

A note on the music: I had sung Howard Hughes’ “Joyful Alleluia” a number of years ago. Occasional commenter Patti and I once attended a parish that used it with their “organ Masses.” When I surfaced it for the Christmas season Alleluia last year, the music leaders were disappointed we were using it for such a short time. So we brought it back for the Easter season, too. Every parish needs something in seven time in its metered repertoire.

Naturally, I don’t play the accompaniment the way it’s published.
